A major change is evident in 
the makeup of this year's 
Residential Policy Committee, 
one which ensures better represen- 
tation of the student body and the 
differing dormitory lifestyles. This 
year, each dormitory has its own 
Committee representative, elected 
by the members of the dorm. The 
size of the Committee has thus 
significantly increased over last 
year's group of nine members. In 
addition to two Heads of House. 
one House President, one Vil 
Junior and Joyce Wadlington, 
Director of Residence, there are 
now 13 dorm represenlutivcs. 
bringing the total membership to 
18 as opposed to last year's nine 
members of which only four were 
students. In addition. Barbara 
Hill, Administrative Assistant to 
Ms. Wadlington. will be sitting in 
on all meetings with the specific 
inienl of providing assistance for 
all rooming concerns. 

The members of this year's 
Residential Policy Committee are 
as follows; Barbara Friedman - 
Tower Court, Grelchen Clark - 
Beebe. Linda Bales - Severance, 
Susan Wright - Cazenove, Donna 
Barnes (Head of House) - 



Freeman. Denise Taylor - Davis, 
Susan Beegel - McAfee, Sally 
Slowman - Bates, Jane Jeter - 
Freeman, Lynn Haynie (House 
President) - Freeman, A.J. 
Johnston - Shafer, Nan Richard - 
Mungcr. Gail Silver - Claflin. 
Janice McQuaid (Head of House) 
- Claflin. Kathcrine D'arcy - 
Stone, Fayre Crosslcy (Vil Ju- 
nior) - Claflin, Tania Lingos - 
Pomeroy. and Joyce Wadlington, 
Director of Residence. 



The Committee has met three 
times this semester and its agenda 
is a full one. Two issues have been 
delegated to it- from Senate: the 
operationalization of a Winter 
Term program and the review of 
the current Residence License 
with a view toward implementa- 
tion of possible changes for next 
year. In addition, two issues have 
arisen from the Committee itself: 
the possibility of instituting a meal 
plan and co-ed corriders in the 



dormitories where cross- 
registered students are housed. 
Also on the agenda is the settle- 
ment of second semester rooming 
for incoming students. 

During the course of the first 
three meetings, other issues were 
raised and resolved. It was decid- 
ed that guests would be allowed to 
all meetings providing that a 
Representative or Ms.. 
Wadlington was notified in ad- 
vance. 



Newell discusses Winter Term 



Bates, Freeman and McAfee may be chosen 
to house Winter Term participants 



by Lin Frackman '76 

In the Senate meeting Monday 

[night. Linny Little '75. President 

>i| College Government, handed 

lout a progress report on plans for 

student housing during the 

[December holiday and winter 

Derm. Final decisions on student 

[housing for December 22 through 

January 12 and for the planned 

[Winter Term. January 13 through 

31. will he made and announced 

rafter the November 15 Winter 

Term reservation deadline. 

According to the plans as of 
this date, all residence halls will 
[close on Sunday, December 22 at 
12 noon. Assuming a minimum of 
200 students (a figure considered 
necessary in order to have a viable 
and exciting program). Bates, 
Freeman and McAfee halls have 
been tentatively selected to house 
Winter Term participants. The 
B;iics-Frccman-McAfce complex 
is the most efficient in terms of 
kitchen operating costs and 
physical plant costs, including fuel 
and hot water 

The Residential Policy Com- 
mittee has already begun work on 
'lans for the use of these halls 
during Winter Term: students 
"iih suggestions should contact 
'heir Res Policy dorm reps. It is 
expected that employees whose 
regular jobs are not available dur- 
ing Winter Term will be offered 
Ihc option of reassignment or un- 
paid vacation. 

Senate discussed two issues of 
'ending Monday night. CG reps

Campus Affairs Committee for 
Fall Weekend. The Committee 
will hire two bands and will 
provide security. 

CG debated the granting of S9.- 
250.00 to WBS, the campus radio 
siaiion. to develop an FM station. 
Mr. Ed Perry, a private consul- 
tant to WBS. explained the ad- 
vantages of an FM station. He 
said that at the present time WBS 
is operating on a carrier current 
system which is inefficient 
technically and difficult to main- 
tain. Because it is difficult with 
this system to send a strong 
signal. WBS does not have a large 
listening audience. 

IT WBS gels a Class D FM 
license, then the signal will be 
much stronger and clearer. Lesley 
Tanaka, '76. station manager for 
\\ US. emphasized that the 
students who are devoting lime to 
WBS. are doing so only because 
of the possibility ol eventually get- 
ting an FM station. Wilh an FM 
station, there would be a much 
higher level of communication in- 
side the campus because faculty 
and administrators would listen. 
as well as sludcniv 

Lcsle\ responded that the 
audience would increase if the 
quality of WBS went up. WBS 
will be the only station thai will be 
in touch with the needs of the 
Wellesley campus, us well as up to 
dale on events on the campus. 

Florence Davis, '76. CG rep 
from Beebe. and Editor in Chief 



ol the Wclleslc\ NEWS, pointed 
out that WBS has started an in- 
tensive training program, to in- 
crease the quality of the programs 
as well as the number of hours 
ihe\ will he on the air. 

Mclanie Ingalls, '77, program 
manager for WBS. added that 
they hoped to eventually be on the 
air for 24 hours a day Mr. Perry 
emphasized that Senate reps 
ought to look beyond today lo ten 
sears from now. There will no 
longer be an FM frequency 
available and there will never he 
another opportunity lo get one. 

Senate reps will vole on the 
question next Monday, after 
speaking with students in the 
dorms.

On Thursday. October 3 1st at 
4:15 p.m.. Ms. Barbara Newell. 
President of Wellesley College, 
met in Davis Lounge for her 
monlhl) open meeting. Represen- 
tatives from many groups in the 
college community were present, 
and the atmosphere of Ihc 
meeting was very informal and 
low-key. 

The first lopic lo be brought up 
for discussion was Wcllesley's 
Winter Term. President Newell 
said lhal personally she is happy 
about the plans for Winter Term. 
She anticipates "the makings of 
some exciting innovative 
programs, not only for during 
Winter Term, but programs which 
hopefully will spin out into 
something new for during the 
regular academic year". In her 
opinion. Winter Term will provide 
a student with new areas of 
endeavor which can contribute lo 



the whole person. 

During much of January, Presi- 
dent Newell will be fund-raising in 
Houston. Dallas. Atlanta, and 
other areas, bul she plans to leach 
a one-week evening seminar on 
issues in higher education in 
America during the lime that she 
is here in Wellesley. 

President Newell introduced 
Ms. Carolyn Elliot who is the 
director of the Center for the 
Study of Women in Higher 
Education and the Professions. 
The Center is jointly sponsored by 
ihe Federation of Organizations 
for Professional Women (which 
held its annual conference here on 
campus last weekend) and 
Wellesley College. At present, the 
( enter is in the process of being 
moved from Green Hall lo 
Cheevcr House. 

Ms, Elliot told the group that 
Ihe Center plans to conduct a 
series of policy-oriented studies on 



a variety of subjects, Of particular 
interest are: ( I ) Ihc career patterns 
of professional women. (2) a com- 
parison of various careers and the 
different avenues of entry into 
these careers. (3) flexible work 
schedules — why does part-time 
work connote nonprofessionalism 
and lack of commitment'.' (4) the 
"math dilemma" — why do a lot 
of women who are very capable in 
math nol lake higher math 
courses, thereby handicapping 
themselves for entry and promo- 
tion in many professions? 

As a central goal, the Center 
wants to work on the social 
arrangement — providing people 
with more choices and alternative 
lifestyles. Also, the Center plans 
to sponsor at least two con- 
ferences, one on occupational 
segregation and one lor female 
administrators of New England 
institutions of higher education. 



Dartmouth stays in exchange: 
But accepts fewer students 



by Nancy McTigue '77 

Dartmouth College has an- 
nounced thai it plans to remain a 
member of the Twelve-College 
Exchange Program. Recently 
there had been speculation thai 
the college would drop out of the 



other eleven colleges, based on the 
size of the institution and the 
number of students applying. 
Wellesley was given one of Ihe 
highest number of available 
places. If students from one of the 
other colleges do not fill the 
spaces alloted lo their school. 



program because of a lack of stu- these places may be made 



The Residence Office would 
like lo remind all resident 
studcnls lhal the first step for 
requesting any rooming ad- 
justments must be to notify the 
appropriate Head of House or 
the Stone/Davis House 
Presidents. The staff will fill 
out and hand lo each student 
requesting a change a form lo 
be delivered lo the Residence 
Office 

New K -appointed Residence 
Office staff with specific 
responsibility lor rooming are 
Ms Barbara Hill. Ad- 
ministrative Assistant, and Ms. 
Pat Sinisulo, Secretary 



dent housing. 

But last week Dartmouth Presi- 
dent John Kemcney approved i 
plan lhal would reduce the 
number of Wellesley students 
accepted into Dartmouth to 12: 
four for the Fall-Winter-Spring 
term, and 8 for the Winter- 
Spring-Summer term. This is ,i 
reduction from the sixteen places 
now available to Wellesley 
sludents. 

This plan was proposed lo 
Dartmouth by the Exchange 
Coordinators of the Colleges in- 
volved in the exchange program as 
an alternative to Dartmouth's 
complete withdrawal from the 
program. Under Ihe new plan, a 
certain number of places are made 
available to students in each of the 



available to Wellesley students 

Dartmouth needed to reduce 
the number of exchange students 



since the "Dartmouth Plan" has 
caused u serious shortage of hous- 
ing during some of the terms. 
Even ihough the college is 
"periling on a year-round 
schedule, studcnls are not coming 
lo Dartmouth during the summer 
term 

More information on the ex- 
change can he obtained from 
Dorothy Moeller, Exchange 
Coordinator.

Emerging Wellesley 
Deserves Commitment 

The Boiird of Admission is hardly thought of as a place lor student 
input Once :i sludeni matriculates ai Wellesley, her thoughts run 10 
even spoi on campus bul Ihe plush lobby and offices on ihc second 
flour of Green Hall. 

Vdmissions concerns not the individual Wellesley sludeni. bul the 
enure college community. The very human fabric of life al Wellesley 
in woven class by class in Board of Admission meetings. This impor- 
tant iispeci ol Welleslcy's existence would seem lo cull for ihc mosl 
basic kind of sludeni activism. 

For Wellesley is siill ,u ;i crossroads. Il is nol enough to have decid- 
ed lo award the Wellesley decree to women only. To maintain this 
status quo look nol action, bul a show of hands. Now we wallow in 
questions ol relevancy in our academic program while efforts al unity 
through extracurricular activity struggle for funds and accepiance. 
Women al Wellesley have noi yel emerged. 

\ move toward ;i cohesive, well-directed college community must 
he made woir. and ihe students and the Board of Admission together 
musl make il. Wellesley must no longer be al ihe mercy of a collective 
image and self-image that, regardless of its content, makes her 
students feel and appear less than proud of their college. Il is obvious 
thill Wellesley has yel lo decide what kind of woman it wants to at- 
tract. A Wellesley unsure of commitments and altitudes lo women's 
education, lo social reform and even to responsible citizenship cannot 
hope lo aliracl siudenls ihui are sure of themselves on these issues, 
either. Il is tune to question and bring out inlo (he open all altitudes 
lhal pervade Wellesley and affect life here. 

The Board of Admission is in altracling and accepting Wellesley 
siudenls. but Ihey have hardly transcended ihe search for "diversity" 
horn ol the student activism of the late '60's. They still recruit 
everybody, in sight when they visit a city and have accepted and enroll- 
ed ihe same numbers or blacks and foreign students over Ihe past four 
years. Puerto Rican applications surged this year and more of ihis 
group than ever (7) have enrolled, bul Mexican-Americans, 
Vmcrican-lndiuns and Spanish - speaking students remain a minisculc 
portion (l-2'J in all) of each class. As Murylyn Kimball, who heads 
ihe admissions recruiting program, put il her office is not com- 
missioned lo change aspects of Wellesley life. NEWS agrees lo Ihe ex- 
tent that change must nol be arbitrary, bul musl evolve from a con- 
scensus of students. There is no consensus now, much less a mandate, 
lor an updated Wellesley image. 

Some siudenls express contempt for what they term a "camel-hair 
cnai admissions policy. Others arc upset al ihe sighl of what they 
consider medicore siudenls: they feel lower SAT scores indicate 
Wellesley s academic siandards are slipping. Slill others resent what 
lhc> see as overhearing faculty control ol Ihe entire admissions 
process All such feelings serve lo undermine pride and confidence in 
Wcllesle) as an educational institution, and they surely show in Ihc 
nay Welleslej siudenls speak of their college lo others. 

W elleslc) is reaching out lo a greal number of high school siudenls 
who have never heard ol Wellesley before. The admissions office sends 
people to College fairs set up in big convention halls and the like in 
nwjoi ones. iu which high schools bus college candidates. Two-thirds 
lo Ihree-quarlers of ihe hundreds of siudenls thai pass by the 
Welleslej booths have never heard of Wellesley. Admissions has also 
instituted lour "searches" for students of various types, receiving 
names from Sludeni Descriptive Questionnaires. This is exciting Ii 
means Wellesley does nol have lo draw from the smaller pool or 
relatives and elites thai know ihe name. Il also means "Ihc name" lo 
many applicants is whatever ihe Wellesley from 1974 on wants to be 
kn..wn In. through interviews, brochures and talking to siudenls. 

Wellesley has decided (o remain a single-sex institution. It has 
deeded lo remain a college for the higher education of women. Now il 
musl decide whai kind of women il has remained single-sex for. The 
answer musl start with ihe Board of Admissions ... and right now. 
they aren't even asking themselves Ihc question. 

Too-high costs 
threaten Winter 
Study program 

In a wave of innovation, all agreed lhal in theory, a Winter Study 
Program would be a marvelous educational experience. Behind every 
greal idea though, looms a cost and Ihe sum ol SI 25.00 looms too high 
especially when Ihis amounl of money is in addition lo an ever in- 
creasing tuition bill. 

Recently, ihe committee organizing ihe Winter Study Program 
sought Ending from SOFC in an cfforl lo lower costs for participants 
m Ihe January progrum and present more activities. As Ihc issue was 
res,, ved. ihe Winter Study committee could solicit funds from in- 
dividual dubs and college organizations in such a way lhal these 
organizations would sponsor various activities, 

Instead ol canvassing round about routes for necessary funding why 
is il noi possible (or ihc college lo buffer some of ihcse costs? Two 
years ago, students remained on campus for mosl of January wilhoul 
addition,,! costs. Furthermore, if ihe program's fee could be lowered 
more students could participate. With greater participation from the 
sludeni body, more faculty members mighl also want loconir.buie to 
inis program. 

The side effects ol a supportive financial move on the pari of the 
college would definitely be mamfold. Especially al Ihis point when the 
idea ol a Wmlcr Study Program is in initial stages, a boost in the right 
direction is so necessary. The economic issues are important, and in 
reality may cast one ol the determining blows which will direct Ihe fate 
ol this program. 



In the ed.torial "WBS radio station may be on the 
blink , ol the October 25, 1974 issue. NEWS stated that 
a 510.000 grant made to WBS three years ago for going 
FM had reverted back to the SOFC account and had 
been reallocated by Senate. This information was in- 
correct. Senate had not reallocated the money; it return- 
ed to the general fund. Despite this mistake, the basic 
premise or the editorial remains valid. NEWS feels it has 
a rcspons.b.hty as a source (perhaps one of the few) of 
correct information on this campus and regrets the error 



Letters to the Editor 



Lack of communication evokes .,. 
'Half-truths' about SOFC, WBS 



To Ihc Editor: 

In reading the editorial "WBS 
Radio Stulion May be on the 
Blink", two points caught my 
attention. The first is lhal SOFC 
immediately cuts budget requests 
slicing funds "without a clear 
sense of ihe validity of (heir rc- 
quesl The second is that WBS 
in particular has not gained 
enough consideration or funding, 
and thai it is SOFC's fault. Both 
are overstatements supported by 
half- or nontrulhs. This indicates 
lhal Senate is. perhaps, guilty ol a 
lack of communication. 

The first ovcrslatemenl concer- 
ning SOFC's decision-making 
techniques is an opinion based on 
a stereotype of Senate in general. 
Il is contradicted two pages later 
in ihc same issue by a lengthy arti- 
cle concerning SOFC's funding of 
Winter Study and ihc 
ramifications il has not only for 
the olher needy organizations, but 
lor the college as a whole. 

The secono statement "if 
Senale does nol pass the funding 
proposal for WBS. then Wellesley 
College mighl nol have any radio 
station al all" is unfounded 
propaganda. A short history of 
the situation verifies my point. 

Three years ago money (SI0.- 
000) was given to WBS for going 
FM. No bands were open for the 
college al that time. Afler two 
years, the money remained unus- 
ed. The funds were discussed in 
Senale and it was decided thai if 
the money was not used within Ihe 
year il would be returned lo the 
general fund. Last spring il went 
back lo where it remains today. 
So the statement lhal "now that 
WBS needs (he money, it isn't 
available" is simply not true. 

WBS requested the money later 
last spring when an FM band 
became available. Over the 
summer no money can be 
allocated because Senate is nol in 
session. However, Ann Connolly, 
student Bursar, submitted their 
request lo an experl for CBS in 
New York for evaluation. He 
found it to be a reasonable es- 
timate of costs and thereby helped 
WBS with its burden in proving 
need. 

In the meantime, Brandeis hus 
challenged WBS's application and 
S300 has been spent for legal con- 
sultation Irom an expert on 
college radio stations and the 
FCC Anne Connolly indicated 
that if ihe legal fees increased 
further, there would be reason to 
believe that Ihe college would help 



finune'e them. 

There is SI 0.000 available and 
iis distribution is a matter of 
priorities and needs. Most likely 
WBS will get the S9.235 il re- 
quested plus additional funds for 
capital and legal speculations. 

I base Ihis speculation on the 
fad lhal WBS is the only group so 
Tar lo formally ask SOFC for 
funds from this account. If the 
sludeni body wants FM, as it 
seems they do, there is no reason 
why they should not gel it. 

We can thank Anne Connolly 
and the other members of her 
commiltee for the professional in- 
vestigation and hard work she has 
done not only with WBS, but with 
the other 50 odd organizations 
funded by SOFC. 

A final point on the "aside" 
made in Ihe editorial. The petty 
attitude taken that there is 
something wrong with a male con- 
trolled radio station seems a bit 
out of line in light of the fact that 
WBS was built by Frank Kap- 
rminn (yes girls, a male) who con- 
tinues lo know more about the 
station and its electrical structure 
than any woman on this campus.

To Ihc Editor: 

As a commitlec concerned with 
intergroup relations, we applaud 
your efforts lo begin a dialogue on 
racism at Wellesley (Wellesley 
NEWS. October 18, 1974). The 
front-page editorial opened up 
publicly some concerns more 
often expressed in private. We 
hope lhal NEWS will continue to 
investigate controversial issues 
and thai members of Ihe college

sibility lo respond honestly and 
without fear in their exploration 
of problems thai affect all of us.

ARB policy penalizes 
Students in exchange program 



To ihe Editor: 

The following is a Idler written 
lo the Academic Review Board 
concerning an academic policy 
which I feel lo be unjust. I feci 
Ihu" such unjusl actions should be 
broughi lo the attention ol the 
students they affect. 

To Ihe Academic 
Review Board: 

Il has come lo my attention 
thai ihe recent ruling concerning 
units of credit needed to graduate 
is discriminatory lo a significant 
segment of Wellesley s student 
population. The policy slating 
lhal the last eight units received 
must be consecutive in order to 
graduate, penalizes Wellesley 
siudenls who spend their junior 
year al another institution. Those 
who eleel lo spend their junior 
year away either in Ihe Slates or 
abroad, arc forced lo lake eight 
courses I heir senior yeai 
regardless of the number of 
credits Ihey already have. A 
sophomore who lakes five courses 
each semester of her sophomore 
year in order to take three more 
difficult and advanced courses in 
each semester of her senior year. 
is nol able lo broaden her educa- 
tion experience by attending 
another institution in her junior 
year if she so desires. Thus those 
who prefer lo lake less ihan eight 
courses their senior year do not 
have ihc option of participaling in 
the Twelve-College Exchange of 
Junior Year Abroad. This situa- 
tion could potentially affect up to 
one-quarter of my senior class 
who did spend their junior year 
away, in addition to those in 



future classes. I feel that this 
policy deserves revision due lo its 
discriminatory nature.

Ballet is 
Female art 

To the Editor: 

"Ballel is Woman." so says 
George Balanchine, contem- 
porary choreographer whose vi- 
sion has almost singlehandledly 
developed the potential inherent 
in ballet. If you don't agree with 
him, you will admit at least thai it 
is primarily girls who learn ballet 
en masse, and almost as a mailer 
of course. Particularly at 
Wellesley, where many of us have 
had at leasl a year of instruction 
as part of Mommy's plun to make 
us less clumsy. Aside from becom- 
ing perfect females, some of us 
have danced with careers in mind, 
bul most of us for love or the art 
alone. 

Wellesley, which recognizes 
theater and musicianship as arts 
worthy of instruction, credit and 
money, offers only one course in 
ballel And that only on an 
elementary level, no , even ev ,. ry 
semester. In ignoring ballet. 
Wellesley as a woman's college- 
deprives its women of the arl that 
is theirs, by the nature of ballet 
ilscir or by their mass participa- 
tion in il

Schneider one night 
Entertainment Costs questioned 



To the Editor: 

"Who were Ihey?" 

When I went home Friday 
night. I tried to remember the 
name of the group who performed 
al Schneider Center. I was par- 
ticularly interested in remember- 
ing since 1 learned that the group 
was paid roughly the same 
amount of money as it costs for 
one semester at Wellesley 
College. To be exact, SI 750.00. 
Knowing that, plus the ho-hum at- 
titude of Ihe small gathering 
(though I would confess that a 
certain few were enjoying the per- 
formance). I find it difficult lo 
justify the expenditure of such a 
large sum of money. As a first, es- 
timate, if Schneider were to raise 
money by admission, the price per 
person would be approximately 
S8.00 (assuming an attendance of 
200-250 persons). 

I call adention lo last Friday 
night because I am outraged at 
the large sums of money that just 
seem lo go unnoticed. Paying top 
dollar and having good entertain- 
ment go hand-in-hand, but I think 
thai the economics should be 
looked at a little more carefully. 
A number of things made last 
Friday night's event memorable:

be remembered because I

We were dismayed at one of the 
advertisements that appeared on 
page 6 of last week's Wellesley 
NEWS, staling that "Liberated 
Women are Belter."- This ad is 
blatantly sexist in that it seems lo 
assume, as many men do, that a 
"Liberated Women" is nothing 
more than- a better sex partner 
because she is supposedly less 
restrained. 

We feel that NEWS, in the 
future, should nol permil sexist 
advertising any more lhan il 
would permil rucisl advertising.

(2) Another event was taking 
place at Alumnae Hall. Did 
someone goof in the planning? 

(3) I never thought of Schneider 
as the Met or Carnegie HalL 
Maybe it's changing its image 
I do not like to see mixers here 
all the time, but Schneider 
really went lo the other ex- 
treme. The performance was 
like lhal of a Jewell Arts , 
Center production, and 1 think 
lhal should have been the 
place. 

I am sure that the interests ol 
the Wellesley College sludeni 
were considered in booking (he 
performance. In fact, the timing 
was good since mosl studenU 
would probably have stayed on 
campus after the October break 
(though I wonder now how logical 
lhal is). The only question that 
remains unresolved in my mind 
(and I think many of those it 
attendance Friday night) is: "Wh) 
so much?" 

Supervisor, of

Toss trash out 

To Ihe Editor: 

I am quite disturbed by one 
particular ad which has been 
appearing regularly in the NEWS 
for five weeks now, usually on 
page six or seven. "Liberated 
Women Are Better" the ad asserts 
in bold black caps, and then il 
goes on to describe the plighi o( 
the divorced male who is "being 
taken" by "old fashioned girls" - 
"only Ihe self-supporting liberated 
woman can help him." The ad 
promotes an item of "progressive 
reading", "satisfaction is 
guaranteed", "mailed 1st class 
same day in plain unmarked 
manila envelope." 

What is going on in the adver- 
tising department of the NEWS? I 
am well aware of the unfortunate 
financial situation of the NEWS; 
however. I think that the acquisi- 
tion of a few more dollars, no 
mailer how desperately needed, 
does not justify the implicit con- 
doning of such degrading, mock- 
ing, sexist garbage.

b y Timmy Nash '74 

jiiur s note: Timmy Nash is a 
fhoplaincy Associate and campus 
Jhtrn with inter-varsity Christian 
fellowship. By way of introducing 
hrself as a member of the 
\haplaincy staff she has chosen 
offer her view of the world 
funger crisis from a Biblical 
hrspeclive. 

'Recently the chaplaincy spon- 
pred a '-erics of Bible studies on 
|ic Old Testament hook of Amos. 
hie thoughts which came from 
jh.ii study have led me to shure 
"mid \ou the message that I 
Sieve God would have us hear 
Hd respond 10. today. 

\niiis was a sheepherder from 
jcln.i who was called by the Lord 

i preach a message of judgment 
ihe nation of Israel. In (hose 

(1 s there were groups of 
Bophels who were expected lo do 

I the prophesying: hence it was 
Guile a surprise lo Israel when 
Kilos', a sheepherder, stepped 
Blu ihe scene, and began to 

ak Ihe Word of ihe Lord. 

Even more extraordinary was 
ft message of doom to a very 
prosperous nation, Israel during 
he reign of Jereboum II (782-753 
BC I had greatly expanded its 
Briton and added lo its material 
Tealth. However, paralleling 
Brad's improved status, there 
las a -growing insensitivity to God 
bnd ihe needs ~of"~Tnen (both in 
Israel and other nations). 

Wh.it does Amos' message to 
Israel have lo do with us? In our 
Judy as we looked closer al the 

fecific sins of Israel we became 
linfuihj aware lhal Ihey were our 

Ml, We deserve the same punish- 
liciil .is Israel did. 

fhe first of Israel's sins was 
h.ii Ihe people had forgotten Ihe 
Kurd. Iheir creator and redeemer. 
[hose who h;id any sense of 
pligion were either making empty 
jcrificcs or worshipping other 
biiN In Chapter 4 alone, the 
Lord points out five calamities 

But He has allowed lo happen to 
Ding ihe nation back lo God, "yet 
fcu have not returned to Me." 
|4:6.S-||) Certainly we have seen 
Ben in our nation many disasters 
Idroughis, Hoods, hurricanes, etc.) 



yel most of us are not seeking the 
Lord sincerely now 

The rest of Israel's sins, and 
they are numerous, all fall into Ihe 
category of failing lo love one's 
neighbor as oneself. In specific 
what Ihis had meant in Israel was 
lhal the richer and more powerful 
people were collecting luxury 
upon luxury al ihe expense of the 
rest of Ihe people. The parallel at 
Ihis poinl to a large portion of 
America is frightening. How 
many people are so concerned 
about being the first on their 
block lo own a — — (fill in 
whatever is appropriate), lhal 
lhe\ never even consider using 
some of (heir money lo feed the 
starving world? 

For us the picture is a little 
different. Not many students are 
saving Iheir pennies for a new 
deluxe Rolls Royce; but how 
many of us are aware of how we 
use the money we have? I dare say 
with some of us. money comes 
and money goes, and \vc seldom 
know where it all went. However. 
Amos would bring us a warning 
that the Lord will hold us accoun- 
table for how we have spent our 
lives and how we have spenl our 
money. 

Amos does indirectly suggest a 
solution. In chapter 9:10 Amos 
says "All ihe sinners of my people 
will die by ihe sword, those who 
say. 'ihe calamity will not over- 
lake or confront us" - . The doom 
Amos is prophesying is for those 
who are so hardened that thes can 
not see ihe death and misery that 
iheir greed has caused. Each of us 
must consider and search our own 
hearts 10 see il we arc guilty of Ihe 
sins Amos names; specifically ig- 
noring both God and the needs of 
our fellow men. 

As our responsibility and ac- 
countability lo God were discuss- 
ed in the luncheon Bible sludy. il 
became clear thai we had lo acl on 
what God had shown us. We were 
prlicularly struck with the cor- 
porate sin of the United Stales in 
ils use of Ihe world's resources, es- 
pecially food and finances 

Il is my prayer that you will nol 
lake lightly ihis article or the 
coming famine relief drive.

"extremely friendly toward the 
United States, not only on the sur- 
face, but even in their educational 
programs." 

On Roosevelt's reeleclion in 
1944. Mao sent him a message of 
congratulations. In the summer of 
1944. Ihe American Observer 
Group, or the Dixie Mission, 
arrived in Yenan as a prelude lo 
broader cooperation between 
Washington and the Communists. 
All of Ihese evenls niusl have 
given Stalin's intelligence agents 
in Yenan much food for thought. 

Although the United States in- 
itially supported the Chinese 
Nationalists in ihe civil war on I lie- 
mainland which began in 1946, by 
late 1948, ihe State Department 
ruled oul ihe use of American 
armed forces lo defend Taiwan. 
And. in 1949. ihe Joint Chiefs of 
Staff reaffirmed their view thai 
overt American military action to 
deny Taiwan lo ihe Communists 
would nol be justified. 

In short, by early 1949 it was 
clear lhal Ihe United Slates was 
nol going lo intervene with troops 
lo prevent the collapse of the 
Nationalist armies on ihe main 
land or lo protect Taiwan against 
Communist invasion from ihe 
mainland. Moreover. Slate 
Department policy makers al Ihe 
lime, although not overly op- 
timistic about ihe short term 
prospects lor improving the 
relations with Communist China 
did hope lor "the early demise of 
ihe developing Sino-Soviel 
relationship" and did realize lhal 
"historically (here had always 
been tension between Russia and 
China", tension ihcy mistakenly 
believed stemmed from the vast 
border the iwo countries shared." 

By and large Secretary of Stale 
Acheson and his chief subor- 
dinates in the Stale Department 
were ignorant of the true nature of 
lite relationship between Mao and 
Stalin in the thirties and forties, 
but ihey did correctly perceive the 
strength of Chinese nationalism. 
and ihey did appreciate the fact 
lhal Soviet territorial ambitions in 
ihe borderlands were bound lo 
strengthen the forces leading to a 
rill, a rill ihey hoped lo en- 
courage. 

While Acheson and his State 
Department advisors correctly 
perceived ihe importance of 
Chinese nationalism and of Soviet 
territorial ambitions, thus predic- 
ting a rift over the "long pull", 
ihey completely failed to lake ihe 
measure of ihe long standing 
ideologically -based tensions 
between Mao and Slalin lhal had 



Iheir roots in Stalin's unsuccessful 
efforts lo gain control of thcCCP. 

1 1 is in part for this reason lhal 
Acheson and Ihe Stale Dcpart- 
incnl did nol look upon recogni- 
tion of ihe new Communist 
regime in China as a burning 
issue. 

On the Chinese side, however, 
there was a sense of urgency, one 
accelerated by a serious internal 
debate lhal raged through the spr- 
ing and summer of 1949. On Ihe 
one >ide. Mao and Chou-En-lai, 
"while support-friendship and 
general collaboration with Russia, 
wanl. nevertheless, lo pursue a 
mere independent line and par- 
ticular!) believe that Communist 
China should seek a working 
relationship with the US and Bri- 
tain in (he interest of trade and 
olhcr dealings of advantage lo 
China." Clearly another advan- 
tage lo Mao and Chou of develop- 
ing a new relationship with the US 
was to make ihe new regime less 
dependeni on Stalin. 

In sum. n is apparent lhal in the 
spring and summer of 1949, al 
leasi one group of Chinese Com- 
munist leaders, including Mao 
and Chou En-lai. were again 
probing the possibility of a 
relationship wiih ihe US thai 
would have made Ihe new Chinese 
regime less dependent on the 
Russians. But the overtures made 
by Mao and Chou were rebuffed 
by President Truman oul of fear 
of rising Congressional opposi- 
tion, led by the Republicans, lo 
abandonment of Chiang Kai- 
shek Thus, tor second lime in 
four years, an important overture 
lo Washington from Mao and 
Chou En-lai was rebuffed. Mao. 
because Washington offered him 
no alternative, was forced reluc- 
lanlly lo go along wilh ihe "inler- 
nalionalisl" faction, led by Liu 
Shuo-ch'i which was arguing for 
an exclusive alliance wilh the 

Soviet Union. 

II ihis analysis is correct, il 
sheds new light on the relationship 
between Mao and Liu Shao-chi. 
ihe leader who was one of Mao's 
llrsi victims during ihe purges 
carried oul in ihe Cultural 
Revolution as "China's 
Khrushchev." .is a symbol of 
"modern revisionism", as the 
dogmatic follower of the Soviel 
model. 

Il seems clear lhal Truman. 
Acheson. and Marshall all gravely 
underestimated ihe differences 
between Mao and Slalin and the 
historic differences between 
( hincse and Russian Com- 
munism. In September, 1949. 



Wellesley as Ecosystem 



by Myra Leysorek '75 

This evening at dinner, while 
looking oul ihe window at a broad 
expanse of lawn. I was put in mind 
of Thomas Jefferson's great 
design in planning Ihe University 
of Virginia and ils Lawn and 
small, walled gardens. All al once 
I knew what Henry Fowlc Durant 
would have wanted us to do. 

In Virginia when young 
gentlemen came (o ihe University, 
ihey brought with them cows 
which grazed on the Lawn that 
lies between the iwo colonnaded 
rows of rooms. Small gardens 
were planted wilh vegetables and 
fruit trees. What Wellesley would 
gain if her land were put lo similar 
uses! 

Lawns could be turned into 
pastures. Courts into gardens, 
Shafer Hall's former dining hall 
into a fine chicken coop v Lake 
Waban stocked with fish, our 
woods and the rhododendron pit 
before ihe library slocked wiih 
game. Paramecium Pond slocked 
wilh carp (close relatives of gold- 
fish and excellent for gcfille fish). 
Hunting and fishing could be add- 
ed lo Ihe Physical Education 
Department's course offerings. 
which already include horseback 
riding (preparing us lo pursue 
hounds who are pursuing foxes; 
though foxes are not popular in 
most cuisines, ihe hounds like 



when British Foreign Secretary 
Erncsl Bevin warned Acheson 
thill if the US was loo obdurate il 
"would drive China inlo ihe arms 
ol Russia", Acheson replied. 
"Ihcy were (here already." 

There is perhaps a deeper ex- 
planation of Ihe failure of 
American policymakers in 1949 
lo lake ihe incisure of the Chinese 
Communists. For a variety of 
reasons having to do largely with 
America's particular historical ex- 
perience, "only infrequently do 
Americans really enler Ihe texture 
of a foreign society." and then 
often wiih a sense of impatience to 
change il. Behind ihis incapacity 
lies ihe absence of any clear-cut 
vision ol politics, of power, or of 
history, other than a superficial 
Wilsonism wiih ils "world of self- 
del e r ni fn cd . self-governing 
nations with mild disputes and 
nondisruplive inlernal issues until 
ihe end ol history, a history kepi

because at the moment, the can- 
ning industry is nol equipped lo 
provide for the needs of bolh our 
dogs and our poor, our aged and 
our huddled musses.) 

The newly expanded Child Care 
Center could accept unlimited 
numbers of applicants in the 
future if we accepted the proposal 
of ihe good Dean Swift 
(economist, political scientist, 
philosopher and menu-planner). 
Those of us who like lo procreate 
around could not do so without 
guilty thoughts of ZPG, I am cer- 
tain lhal every reader has ideus of 
her own to add to this compen- 
dium. 

The advanlages of this plan will 
be manifold. Every moment our 
world becomes more crowded, 
farm land becomes scarcer, our 
economy falls into direr straits, 
(he cost of maintaining the 
grounds goes up, (he cost of a 
Wellesley education goes up loo, 
and (he job market, (hough it ad- 
mires us. doesn'l offer us a cenl of 
salary. 

All these problems will be 
mitigated by putting Wellesley's 
resources to better use, leaching 
ourselves some useful skills and 
making our campus semi-self- 
sufficient. (The bells tradition has

Barstow^ The play's the thing 



by Sharon Collins '77 

Paul Rogers Barstow is the 
Iji'rman of the Department of 
heatre Studies and the director 
flhe Wcllesley College Theatre. 
He received a B.A. in English 
V,, Williams, studied theology 
Oxford, taught English at 

jlliams for two years, and then 
idid graduate work in theatre at 
fale to receive his M.F.A. 
Igarstow came to Wellesley in 
«5 and taught in the Speech 
Ipartment which offered several 
[eatre-related courses. He 
Lame chairman of the Speech 
tpartment and, because of his 
merest in theatre, the overall 

tc \ of the department changed. 

I/Vt that time, the College 

ffered what was called a 

program in theatre studies" 

Jich consisted largely of ex- 

hdepartmental courses. Finally. 

Yur years ago, the official 

jeparlment of Theatre Studies 

k founded. 

garstow and Eric Levenson 
jtch all of the courses in the 
tpartment. There arc usually two 
, three Theatre Studies majors in 

ch graduating class. 



Most Theatre Studies majors 
spend a year away, many of them 
at the National Theatre Institute 
in Walerford, Conn. Of the three 
Theatre Studies majors who 
graduated last year, one is work- 
ing with the Alley Theatre in 
Houston, another is doing 
graduate work in theatre at Tufts, 
and the third is pursuing oppor- 
tunities in New York City. 

Not all Theatre Studies majors 
want to be actresses, producers, 
directors, etc. — some choose the 
major simply as a liberal arts con- 
centration, just as they would 
choose English or Philosophy. 

The Theatre Studies Depart- 
ment instructs students in 
dramatic literature, the history of 
drama and theatre, and criticism, 
as well as the skills of acting, 
directing, set design, and 
playwriting. There is a symbiotic 
relationship with other 
departments — certain courses in 
other departments count towards 
a Theatre Studies major. 

Barstow stressed that the 
Theatre Studies Department is 
separate from the Wellesley 
College Theatre, although, of 
course, there is overlapping in-

volvment. 

The Wellesley College Theatre 
is an extracurricular organization 
which produces the plays that are 
presented yearly here at the 
College. The group tries to choose 
plays of different types — usually 
one classic, one early modern, and 
one contemporary. 

Barstow hopes to dispel the no- 
tion that the theatre group is an 
exclusive coterie. "Casting for all 
Wellesley College productions is 
completely open," he explains, 
"It's disturbing that some 
talented students seem too in- 
timidated to try out for the 
plays." 

The Experimental Theatre 
group, which is part of the 
Wellesley College Theatre, will 
present "Wailing For Godot" on 
November 15 and 16. It is a stu- 
dent directed production, as are 
all of the Experimental Theatre 
plays. 

The first major production of 
the year, directed by Barstow, will 
be "The Game of Love and 
Chance" by Marivaux. The play 
is an 1 8th century French roman- 
tic comedy of sensibillte which 
centers on the development of love 
between two people as they 
gradually discover each other 
through an intricate plot of dis- 
guise and deception, It will be 
presented on December 6. 7, and 
8. 

Besides his activities at 
Wellesley, Mr. Barstow is in- 
volved in "whatever is going that I 
can squeeze in". 

He has worked summer stock 
almost every summer for the last 
twenty years. "Anything that you 
know can help you at some time 
or another in the theatre," he said. 

His favorite acting job is, "the 
one that I'm doing at the 
moment." In general, he has 
predilections for Shakespeare, 
Moliere, restoration comedy, 
Williams, Albee, and Pinter. 

As for the Winter Term, 
Barstow has suggested a seminar 
on Edward Albee, since there will 
be two productions of Albee plays 
here on campus second semester.

Wine, Women, and Song 



by Cindy Creve *75 



The Schneider Center Coffee 
House is run on the premise that 
Wellesley women should have the 
opportunity to socialize infor- 
mally with each other, rather 
than travelling lo other schools 
for relaxation. 

Featured at the Coffee House 
are beer and wine, a juke box, and 
live entertainment every Wednes- 
day and Friday nights. Live per- 
formers usually arc Boston area 
musicians who have auditioned 
for Sue Pinto '75, Manager of the 



Bergman's Scenes 



by Emily YofTe '77 



Iiii.mii.-h Bergman's latest film, 
"Scenes From A Marriage," now 
at the Exeter theatre in Boston, is 
an intricate examination of a 
relationship between two people. 
It is also a searing look at the 
ramifications and cxislance of 
love. 

"Scenes" gives us ten years in 
the lives of Marianne (Liv 
Ullman) and Johan (Erland 
Josephson). When we first see 
them they are being interviewed 
by a magazine as the archetypal 
ideal couple. 

When asked to describe 
themselves Johan recites a siring 
of words which include: hand- 
some, intelligent, successful scien- 
tist, and splendid lover. Marianne 
can think of little more to say 
about herself than that she is 
married lo Johan, has two 
daughters and is a lawyer 
specializing in divorce. 

Between this ideal couple there 
arc already hints of the fissure lo 
come. They are sealed side by side 
on a sofa, yet there is a distance, 
an awkwardness between them. 

Later they discuss whether sex 
is important in a marriage. While 
seeming "open" they arc each 
hiding from their growing es- 
irangment. 

Finally Johan comes home to 
announce he is leaving to live in 
Paris with a twenty-three year old 
woman. Ullman's painful 
recovery from the shock of the 
situation is acting al its best. 

Though they do divorce, and 
later marry others, they can't let 
go of each other. We witness their 
shattering brutality, as well as 
their final coming lo terms with 
the difficulty and wonder of love. 

While "Scenes" was written, 
directed, and produced by Ingmar 
Bergman, it is as much his 
players' film, as his own. 

Liv Ullman and Erland 
Josephson give two masterfully 
subtle, complex and complete por- 



trayals. 

Because it was originally made 
for T.V., "Scenes" is almost ex- 
clusively closeups and medium 
shots of Ullman and Josephson. 
Yet the range and nuances of 
human relationships is rendered 
fully on these two faces. 

Though "Scenes" is much more 
than one expects lo receive in the 
movies, it is not Bergman's mosl 
important work. 

One is not challenged by the 
deep examination of ihe psyche as 
in "Personna" or "Hour of the 
Wolf." Though "Scenes" presents 
the complexity of relationships, it 
is not a complex film. We are ask- 
ed to be absorbed by Marianne 
and Johan, rather than by 
Bergman's difficult and thrilling 
vision. 

There is one complaint of a 
technical nature. What subtitled 
dialogue there is seems totally 
consistanl with what is happening 
on screen, yet one needs more of it. 
Whole sentences are spoken 
before we are given just a few 
words of translation. 

While not his greatest film 
"Scenes From A Marriage" amp- 
ly demonstrates why Ingmar 
Bergman is one of the great men 
of film. 



Coffee House. 

In addition, student musicians 
from Wcllesley often perform, for 
example, a student will play this 
coming November 20. 

The most successful act this 
year was that of guitarist Bill 
Staines on October 16. He played, 
sang, and yodcled his own com- 
positions to a crowded, lively 
audience. 

Mosl of the Coffee House 
musicians play their own ac- 
oustic guitars and sing easy, 
folksy songs. 

The Coffee House has only one 
problem: not enough people lake 
advantage of it. Many students 
conceive of Wcllesley as a suitcase 
school; and as Ms. Pinto states, 
"It lakes a leap of faith for these 
people lo sample a campus activi- 
ty which may be worthwhile." 

She points out in addition that, 
"men from other area schools 
often come lo the Coffee House, 
but that they move upstairs if the 
downstairs crowd is loo small." 

The Coffee House is there for 
students who want lo enjoy 
Wellesley, listen to good music, 
drink, and mingle in a relaxed at- 
mosphere. It is open every nighl in 
the basement of Schneider. 

The following is a schedule of 
live Coffee House performances 
for the rest of this semester: 

Nov. 8. Cathie Winter, 
guitarist. 

Nov. 13, Jennie Stahl and 
Cathie Winter, in a program of

Welleslev students will get a 
chance lo spur changes in the 
curriculum and extracurricular 
offerings of (he physical education 
deparlmenl through a survey dis- 
tributed today thai polls their 
preferences for athletic activities 

The questionnaire-form surve) 
represents an effort by Ihe P.E. 
deparlmenl to update the 
curriculum lo relied current stu- 
dent interest, according lo Ms. 
Linda Vaughan, chairman of the 
deparlmenl. 

Organized in four pages of 
short-answer and preference 
questions, ihe poll is designed lo 
cover student opinion on topics in- 
cluding (he curriculum, the P.E. 
requirement, registration 



procedures, and competitive and 
recreational opportunities. 

"We're looking for some sense 
of student body opinion in this 
area before we go ahead and make 
changes." said Ms. Vaughan. Stu- 
dent feedback in Ihe form of con- 
structive suggestions on these 
questionnaires represents ihe 
chance for students to do 
something about various com- 
plaints they may have over the 
program, she added, 

"Any substantive changes in 
Ihe P.E. curriculum or require- 
ment must go through the 
Curriculum Committee and 
Academic Council, as is true of 
any academic deparlmenl. 
However, ii is hoped that the in- 
formation gathered from 
responses lo this questionnaire 



will enable (he deparlmenl 
upon certain rccom 



immediately." Ms. V dU g han

Despite fine play and hearly cf- 
lorl, Ihe field hockey learn was 
narrowly defeated in three 
matches last week. 

Last Tuesday coach Sheila 
Brown's team sacrificed their last 
day of vacation and travelled lo 
Smith to participate in a 
triangular meet wilh Smith and 
Trinily. The first game began 
slowly for Wellesley while" a 
slrong Trinily learn scored twice 
in the first hair. By (he second hair 
Wellesley came back lo play a 
fast, alert match. Cherie German 
'75 scored Wellesley's only goal in 
Ihe second half on a shorl corner 
to make Ihe final score 2-1. 

With hardly a moment's rest, 
eleven tired Wellesley women 
took on a Crest Smith team. The. 
game was quick with Smith 1 
dominating Ihe play, although 



Wellesley had several narrowly 
missed shots on goal by Lisa 
Greene '77. Smith scored three 
goals to Wellesley's none. Fine 
performances were turned in by 
Ihe Wellesley defense, which in- 
cluded Caplain Shelby Riddle '76, 
Caroline Erisman '77, Kathy 
Owen '78. Nancy Faunce '78, Sue 
Trout '77, and goalie Meg Hall 
78. 

A well-coached Worcester 
Stale came lo Wellesley last 
Thursday to defeat Wellesley 5-3 
' m an exciling game that featured 
mis of scoring on both sides. 
Worcester scored four limes in the 
firs! hair while Wellesley's Kale 
larnsvvorlh "77 and Holly Woir 
75 each skillfully passed the 
Worcester goalie. Kate 
r-arnsworlh scored her second and 
Wellesley's final goal. 



Wellesley's offensive stars i 
chide: Kale Farnsworth '77, He* 
Wolf '75. Pam Farley '75. CM 
Swangcr '76 and Kate RiepcT. 

Yesterday Wellesley plavxd 
lasl but most important gi* 
against rival Radcliffe on Ite 
field. A win against Radcliffe* 
surely make the season quite a 
more satisfying for the sqiL 
which lost four games this yen 
and won but one after going e* 
defeated the past Iwo years.
